I remember grabbing a tennis racket and heading off to the court to see just how amazing I was. Much to my surprise...I stunk! Getting to Wimbledon was going to take a lot of hard work and practice.
Needless to say, I gave up on that plan a long time ago, and when it comes to voice acting, the same principles hold true. There's a lot more to becoming a successful voice actor than a computer and microphone.
My podcast guest this week has had a long and successful career as a singer, actress, and voice actor. Now, as a voice-over coach and talent agent, she dedicates much of her time to helping aspiring voice actors learn the craft.
She's a wonderful person, and incredibly gracious to spend some time with me, sharing her knowledge.
...and she even uses the tennis analogy during the podcast!
